COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smuttynose IPA is a physical salute to the glory of the American hop grower. The citrusy hop flavor coming from a mixture of Simcoe and Santiams is pleasantly balanced by a smooth bitterness from the Amarillo hops. The beer itself is light bodied and crisp with a golden color that will throw a slight haze, as we bottle it unfiltered. At 65 IBU’s, this is definitely not a training-wheels IPA, but is meant for hop lovers looking to satisfy their craving in a way that’s not easy to find. We think they’ll be quite pleased.

Positive points for citrusy orange and malty aromas. Negative points for the overwhelmingly bitter, metallic taste it leaves you with.

Thanks Ty5592. A clear almost orange pour. A clean aroma of citrusy hops and light malt. A very hoppy flavor with just enough malt to balance this beer out. I has an excellent bitter finish. Good carbonation round this beer out. A very good example of the style. I liked this beer very much. thanks ty

probstblueribbon (3652) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2006
12 oz. bottle from Beers of the World. App.: golden with a fairly open white head. Flakes of ...yeast? Is this on lees?? Aroma: nice hops, citrusy, a bit resinous. A touch of malt tries to peak through. Palate: Low carbonation, med. bodied. Flav.: a nice blend of malt and hops to start, strong hop finish, some bitterness. A touch of sweetness is barely perceptible under the hops, but adds balance. A hint of malt in the aftertaste too. A good beer.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2006
[12oz Bottle - Thanks to The Beer God for this shipment] This was a deep golden color with a fair head. The aroma of hops was pretty good. This would rival some NW IPA’s. The malt was nice but the yeast was a bit too much. This was a good IPA just less yeast.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2006 12 oz bottle shared with StompBrockmore - at first we thought it had gone off, but no, those dead-skin-looking floating chunks of yeast are normal. Poured with an orange glow, mainly light citrusy hops in the aroma. Very nice taste, bold but not overpowering, good mouthfeel and a bittering finish. Well-balanced IPA. Grand.

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2006
12oz bottle, shared with VeloVampire - pours a hazy light orange (due to the chunky yeast sediment in the bottle) with a lightly rocky white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, but they are light in the nose. The taste reveals this is a very balanced IPA, with the hops very evident, but not screaming to make themselves known. There’s a good citrus/earthiness there in the finish, and very little aftertaste. Moreover, I like the guy on the left of the bottle label. I want to know where he got his boots because I’m dressing up like him next Halloween.

askjaer (23) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2006
Generally a nice and easy drinkable IPA. The aroma is nice with estery fruity flavours of melon and other ripe fruits. It has a honey like sweetness to it and is fresh and light. Better on tap than on bottle.

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 10, 2006
Murky yellow body with chunks of yeast in it (completely unintentionally), with a quarter of an inch of head. Smells very very hoppy, both piney and citrusy. Citrusy hops and bitter hops dominate the flavor, though I think they may be subdued somewhat by the yeast. Medium to full in body. Very tasty and enjoyable. Surprisingly drinkable.

Nice orange color with a good sized foamy head. Nice hop aroma. Very good hoppy flavor and bitterness. An easy to drink IPA. Another winner from Smuttynose.
